Kinsterna Hotel Monemvasia
Monemvasia, Greece - £££
Nestling high on a hillside in a little-visited corner of the beautiful Peloponnese, the Kinsterna Hotel is a stunning 13th century Byzantine/Ottoman mansion house, lovingly restored and renovated entirely in harmony with the landscape. From its vantage point, there are quite splendid views over the fairy-tale castle rock town of Monemvasia to the azure blue Aegean beyond. The gastronomic restaurant serves fine Mediterranean cuisine featuring ingredients produced in the hotel grounds, including olive oil, citrus fruit and vegetables, all served with a contemporary twist and accompanied by fine boutique house wines from the mansion's privately owned vineyards. What is really unique at the Kinsterna Hotel is its signature river-like swimming pool, which has as its source, a freshwater spring that emanates from the hotel basement.
